Using Python to Access Web Data

Written 11 months ago
On the easy side, the programming tasks definitely simple - they could each be solved in Excel within 5 minutes without requiring programming. Lectures Scripts Tests and Tasks are mistake-free. There was quite a lot of bypassable 'additional material' which I did indeed skip. I completed the entire course in about 12 hours over 4 days. Definitely useful for a beginner. I took it to revive my memory of Python.

Learning How to Learn: Powerful mental tools to help you master tough subjects

I finished it in 2 days, 6 hours. Verbose and lightweight. Full of obvious motherhood principles, there is not a single original idea I can take away from it, and certainly nothing that helps me with the acquisition of Chinese characters where I already use SRS software like Anki. The 'test checklist' was totally inapplicable for MOOC study
